Country Rifle: USA by Rainier Arms

Hello! Happy to see me?

Hello! Happy to see me?

Let’s go a bit more into detail with one of the “Country Rifles” made by Rainier Arms for the IWA 2016 exhibition in Germany.

We’ve published a few pictures before, but we now have more and better quality images to display. It would be a waste to just let them sit on a hard drive instead of sharing this great work of art.

By popular demand TFB presents the United States of America – rifle by Rainier Arms

This rifle features the brand new handguard “Night Rail” by Fortis Manufacturing and an Aimpoint Micro on a Fortis mount.

More information about the hand guard can be found here. I’m pretty sure the design will keep the CNC machines busy for a long time ahead.

Rainier Arms specialize in AR15 rifles, parts and accessories with a focus on top-of-the-line, premium rifles.

All pictures taken by CHummerz. Let the eye-candy begin.

The United States of American, balancing on a MagPod.

Rainier Arms logotype on the bolt carrier. Note the stripes along the top of the picatinny.

The silver finish on the beginning of the hand guard resembles to a turbine or a jet engine.

Stop for a second and take note of all the details, a real piece of art.

2

Premium parts for demanding individuals looking for unique firearms.

By the looks of it, that is a Rainier Arms Avalanche Charging Handle NiB 5.56-Tac Latch.

The grip is Magpul MOE+.

Below: It would almost be a shame to put the first shot through that compensator!

The compensator seems to be a Xtreme Tactical Compensator, Rainier Arms XTC 2.0.

In the unlikely event that your Aimpoint goes black, the Rainier Arms Back Up Iron Sights blends in nicely until needed. (see both above and below)

4

Custom paint by Blowndeadline. They offer more than 100 colors, or custom mixes of Ceracote.

6

Below: Fortis short angled grip. This would not be my personal choice for a grip, but the design is nice.

All the Cerakote artwork was done by Michael from Blowndeadline Custom.

They only use Cerakote H-Series firearm coatings. All their patterns and stencils are created in-house with vinyl to create clean lines. If you want a one of a kind firearm this is the way to go.

Rainier Arms states that “if we won’t use it, we won’t sell it.”

A statement which seems easy to live up having seen this and other rifles.

I do like that Fortis mount holding the Aimpoint Micro, and the typical reflection in the Aimpoint always makes for a nice photo.

  • Volk

    Shame we get the least aesthetically pleasing rifle of them all. I like Norway and Germany.

    • Erik B

      Except Norway isn’t on there. LOL

    • Sianmink

      From a design standpoint, our flag is a mess.
      That’s Switzerland, not Norway. Or maybe it’s Denmark.

      • Evan

        It’s Denmark. Switzerland has the short stubby cross, Denmark’s cross extends to the edges.

    • M.M.D.C.

      The stars need an unbroken field, like the receiver, so it might have worked better if they had flipped the image.

      • Rob

        Negative. Stars go forward. Otherwise it looks like retreat.

      • Dan Atwater

        Then it would be backwards. Stars always go to the front, “towards the enemy.”

        ETA: Oops, Rob beat me to it.

    • Evan

      There’s a Sweden and a Denmark, but no Norway

  • Anonymoose

    I sure hope that UK rifle is straight-pull only! :^)

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    I still like the French shorty best.

    • Major Fret

      I personally think it’s missing something…

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Say that to this guy….

    • M.M.D.C.

      Three hours and still no ”only dropped once” joke.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Thats a record.

      • Queens Lawyer

        thats unfair. the french were essential in defeating the british. the french have a reputation as some pretty hard core fighters to this day. its french generals that sucked (cf. french mutinies of 1917, the maginot line, dien bien phu). we owe the french for our nations very existence and should not be unfairly bad mouthing their soldiers.
        /sorry this is too political for tfb. Im done now.

        • M.M.D.C.

          Meta joke is joke about joke. No?

    • Evan

      Even with that muzzle device?

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Easy fix.
        Unscrew it and put on a can.

        • Evan

          But then you’d still have that mag well.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            I got no problem with that. I like a short barrel.

  • Anonymoose

    Third down on the left is either Monaco or Indonesia, fourth on the right is definitely Denmark.

    • Evan

      I would’ve guessed Poland

  • Samael527

    The Swiss rifle looks more like the Indonesian flag and the Austrian rifle is clearly the Danish flag.

  • Evan

    That rifle is criminally ugly, and the flag is horribly done. I suppose it’s meant to look like it’s waving, but in the end it just looks tattered. If you insist upon doing an American flag rifle, you shouldn’t give it a distressed finish.

    • John

      I think it evokes the Star Spangled Banner. Tattered flag still standing after heavy attack, etc. It’s a popular image in movies and games.

      • Evan

        I don’t get that from it. I get something more like what you might see on an energy drink can trying to look “x-treme”, or one of those bad tattoos of a torn flag with an eagle popping out or something. The original flag from the Star Spangled Banner is deservedly in a museum, but generally, a torn and tattered flag should be taken down and disposed of respectfully. The dirty, threadbare flags you see on car antennas just look awful.

  • Don Ward

    Can I get an AK-47 embossed with a Mozambique flag?

  • SLi-Fox

    Nice! But where’s the rear spoiler? Does the paint job add to fps?

  • Bonzaipilot

    Personally I’d have no problem putting the first shut down through the tube and compensator. I think it would be a pleasure myself.

  • Bob

    that aimpoint seems to be mounted a LOT higher then it needs to be. How will you get an accurate cheek weld to the stock to get your eyeball up that high?

  • Realist

    That’s one fugly arsed weapon…a weapon only the builder could love.

  • Zebra Dun

    I hesitate to ask if there is a LGBT flag version.
    Not that I want one.

  • spike1984

    The French colors evoke France’s attempt in the early postwar period to build a credible semiautomatic service rifle in the form of the CEAM1950 assault rifle to replace its dated bolt-action service rifles like the MAS-1936 and the Chassepot.
